Using Knowledge of how Students Think about Mathematics.
Peterson, Penelope L.; And Others
Educational Leadership, v46 n4 p42-46 Dec-Jan 1988-89
Recent research suggests that knowledge is stored in the learner's head as a network of concepts or constructs. Children's mathematical problem-solving strategies become increasingly abstract as they are able to engage in more abstract thinking. An experimental study using an alternative Cognitively Guided Instruction approach is described. Includes seven references. (MLH)
